Eagles vs Chiefs recap: Kansas City wins tough game over Philadelphia

Of course, the most notable connection is that Andy Reid was the long-time coach of the Eagles before coming to Kansas City.

Eventually Andy Reid's Chiefs pulled away and beat the Eagles 27-20 on Sunday afternoon at a raucous Arrowhead Stadium.

So maybe the best lesson Reid ever proffered Pederson was to hire a good defensive mind to complement the sexy stuff. The Chiefs racked up 537 yards in a 42-27 win against Super Bowl champion New England in their opener. We'll check in with Century High School graduate Carson Wentz each week the Eagles have a game. Hill has a touchdown of 60-plus yards in five consecutive games.

The Chiefs and Eagles swapped field goals in the first quarter of their matchup.

"All that stuff starts with those guys up front", Smith said of his offensive line. Very athletic, probably more athletic than people give him credit for.

He was replaced by Kevin Hogan, who promptly moved the Browns 83 yards in five plays for a touchdown, on a pace to David Njoku.

Hunt, the rookie running back had 13 carries for 81 yards and scored two touchdowns on the ground.

That said, the Chiefs are not invincible.

I'm a big believer in this year's Chiefs squad.

This will be Wentz's first game in Arrowhead, a place where young quarterbacks generally struggle.

This week, it could be someone different. The Eagles have given him a few more weapons at receiver. The wide-receiving upgrades also help open things up over the middle for the backs and tight ends.

"I've always been a competitor", Mills said. Limiting big plays, which the Eagles did very well in Week 1, will once again be the key to success for the Philadelphia D. Obviously, we missed a couple down the field to Torrey.

Chief fans all across America will hate me, but I am betting on a let down from the high of week one. I see no reason why KC shouldn't get the win this week.

The Chiefs led 6-3 at the half as two Satos field goals - a 34-yarder and a 39-yarder - was all the team had to show in the first 30 minutes. The Eagles are going to hang around a lot of games, but that doesn't mean they're going to win many.

The two matched up before, when Johnson was a rookie in 2013, and the result wasn't pretty for the Eagles. Ehinger indicated he may be ready to return to the lineup early in the season, but all indications suggest the Chiefs want to take it slowly with the second-year lineman. Carson Wentz has shown that he can improvise and make big plays, but if he can do that in addition to making the big plays when the plays don't break down, then he will be in business. "I know it made me a better player".

The same could be said of Wentz, whose improved scrambling abilities proved to be the difference between a win and a loss last Sunday.

Coach Pederson has ruled out running back Donnel Pumphrey (hamstring), cornerback Ronald Darby (ankle), and defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao (wrist) for Sunday's game.

The next man up in the free safety position is looking like second-year safety Eric Murray out of the University of Minnesota. Mentally, at least, he's up for the challenge, especially when it comes to matching up with the speedy Hill.

"You have to trust yourself regardless", Mills said. "If he's not the fastest guy in the league, he's one of them". Swearinger trying frantically to get to the pass in time.

It's the NFL. Everybody's good.to continue to fight and not get frustrated and stay together and find a way, I think that's important. "Everything's just going good right now".
